Frozen Reef Plankton - 30 Cubes - 3.5 oz

San Francisco Bay Brand Frozen Reef Plankton is a 3.5 ounce package that contains 30 individual frozen cubes designed to provide essential nutrients, vitamins and proteins to the inhabitants of your reef based aquatic ecosystem. Ideal for reef tanks, these versatile, nutrient rich plankton cubes are enthusiastically eaten by an incredibly wide variety of reef inhabitants such as various anemones, corals, scallops, shrimp, anthias, butterflies, clownfish, gobies, mandarins, pygmy angels, filter feeders and many more. This food source is made with Copepods, copepodites and copepod nauplii from the Calanus species, a much larger copepod (compared to the San Francisco Bay Brand Cyclops copepods) inhabiting cold marine waters. Calanus are an important member of the zooplankton community and form an essential prey species for a wide variety of marine organisms, from fish larvae to plankton sieving whales. Due to their grazing on marine phytoplankton, Calanus copepods contain very high levels of the important polyunsaturated fatty acids EPA & DHA as well as various carotenoids (natural pigments) to intensify their stunning colors and patterns. Calanus forms an excellent food source for feeding marine fish fry, smaller marine fish and marine invertebrates. Some corals may be too small to feed effectively on these plankton. Helps to enhance growth and provide fish with a well needed boost of energy.

Please Note:

Feed often, but only what can be consumed in three minutes. Remove any uneaten food. Never overfeed. No thawing or rinsing required. Keep frozen.

Microwaving or thawing in hot water is not recommended, as this breaks down the nutrients contained in frozen fish food.
